    I had felt this from the beginning, but then wavered due to other theories put forth by press, YouTube channels, posters. This appears to be a case where the simplest explanation was indeed the correct one.

    Dry bags won't float unless you close them with air in them. Sometimes people do this on purpose. Without air, they sink like a rock.
    That white dry bag is not very burly and it has a hole in it. Would have sunk IMO.

    This is ballgame. Brian Laundrie is almost certainly dead.

    If a gun was missing from the home (I believe it was, iirc), I hope they find the skull to determine whether he shot himself (most likely way to shoot oneself), and perhaps the gun itself. This in order to put to rest whether it was intentional suicide or accident, for what it's worth.

    Especially if he was under water for that time.

    I agree with you. I just don't see how someone would think a meal kit box sent yesterday is relevant today, given the news we are getting.

    My opinion, maybe they thought he would come home after he cooled down and they could talk to him about doing the right thing?

    I completely agree. I've always known I'd rather be the mother of the victim, than the mother of the perpetrator. They won't get the overwhelming support that Gabby's family has gotten - they'll be grieving alone. And they can't look back with great satisfaction that their child was a wonderful and happy person who left the world a better place for having been alive. Really, really awful.

    Eagle8HD is back in the air over the tent:


    And a huge black trailer was just pulled into the park, very ominous-looking. I saw it on both the Fox13 stream and the WFLA but can't see it now:

    It's looking like Brian did take a hike in the swamp and didn't return according to his parent's account ?
    And then he chose to commit suicide instead of answering Gabby's families' questions ?

    It almost indicates Gabby was murdered by Brian and no one else was ever involved, and only Brian was the culprit.
    Still many questions are unanswered.

    Was BL supported for a time by any outside entity ?
    Or did he commit suicide the day he left home ?
    Why did his parents wait for four days to report him missing ?
    I'm assuming they had to be anxious about him !

    Or did the finding or Gabby's remains and the coroner releasing the manner of death as a homicide change the situation as far as BL ?
    How did the parents find his belongings so swiftly ?
    From the links, it looks like the HRD dogs located remains after the items were found.
    Skeptical that it's him until there's official confirmation.
    Somewhat doubtful it's anyone else, though.

    Speculating here that he took his life soon after leaving his parent's house vs dying from exposure to the elements, as he seemed like the type to have given himself up to LE before going through that type of hardship ?
    Imo.

    Depending on the animal, some would drag it, some would eat it right there. It's not like they were afraid of the backpack and needed to drag the body. The whole area is "wilderness". Sounds like parts were scattered (not found) and other's are in the area. Also, the water could have moved parts after the animals left (trying not to be gross). I have felt he has been gone for sometime. Just a hunch, since her body was found so quickly he had nothing to live for. He knew he was "going down".

    I was wondering the same thing if L's had already searched this area when they found the mustang. Good catch!

    If this were a fiction thriller, the body just found would turn out to be one of the BL lookalikes...

    It does look like the tip of the nose of a small automatic. IMO
